Broad Street

North side abutment of former bridge over Great Eastern Street at Shoreditch, part of the North London Railway Broad Street branch, opened in 1865 and closed in 1986, seen from a TfL bus on route 43 from London Bridge to Friern Barnet on 15th May 2021. Just north of here, most of the old Broad Street viaduct was reopened in April 2010 for London Overground with the new link from the East London Line and new stations at Shoreditch High Street, Hoxton, Haggerston and a reopened Dalston Junction. If I had £1 for every time I travelled over this bridge into Broad Street (sadly now demolished) as a boy, I could have retired quite comfortably by the time I was 30.
